They lied about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, too: A Redneck's Lament

"When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat." — R. Reagan

"Put a knife to your throat if you are given to appetite; don't desire the king's dainties, for they are deceitful meat."
— Solomon


I stopped by Bart Stupak's local office the other day to ask how's it goin'? I'm just guessing but I think there are probably 53 nays for every 47 yeas in the House of Representatives. After a year and a half of this, Nancy's percent is probably still stuck on 47, like the lower 48 before Arizona was counted.

"The campaign is over," Nancy, and the people won. This is not Cuba; in America, the people are WE and "We are the champions." We will rock you — hey, hey, hey — you're not in Chicago no more, Toto.

Try a different bat behind closed doors, Nancy. Remember to keep the trademark up. Rub a little dirt on it (oh I forgot; you tried the dirt already).

When God said that it is more blessed to give than to receive, He wasn't talking about bribery or a protection racket. You're not in Chicago anymore, Toto.

Which part of "no" do you guys not understand — the 'N' or the 'O'? We the People aren't buyin the dog food. You've already tried every trick in the book. Throw out the teleprompter and buy a Bible (or borrow Bill Clinton's — he's not usin it anymore). History is bein made but not the way you expected.

Wait'll next year and the Cubs will be fine (or Sox whatever). Power to the People, not the polar bears. Freedom and Liberty ain't just bumper stickers; they were written in blood. Valley Forge was like hell frozen over, and the Brits found out that for them it HAD. You're not in Chicago anymore, Toto.

I think the Fat Lady's about to start singin. As Dandy Don used to say, "The party's over, turn out the lights"; get along little dogie, get along home (for Nancy, that's flyaway home on your Air Force 3). How's that for a scary thought when the talkin points of the Sophists have the same "acronym" as used Toilet Paper?

They lied to us on Christmas Eve and the Bunny ain't comin for Easter either. They're still lyin to us about so-called "climate change," but what's next? The loneliest guy in my home town is the guy trying to hire census workers. Maybe they'll have to hire illegal aliens to do "the job Americans don't want to do." How convenient that would be for ACORN, but you're not in Chicago anymore, Toto.

CONCLUSION: "A Redneck's Prayer"

If it came to a "voice vote" in the House, would they even hear the nays?
If we can't make them see the light, make them hear the "NO WAYS"!
It's time for We the People to hit a round tripper, and win one for the Gipper.
The bases are loaded, despite a Wrigley nor-easter,
So swing from the heels, and send the heels home fer Easter.
["Not four more years, but four more nays, please"]

P.S. While Other-People's-Money is temptin, those "other" people are goin broke too. While "talk is cheap," the Big Nanny State ain't. Like, DUH!

PPS: For more reading material, if you will, search my columns for references to Chicago. For example, I was right in Hyde Park in 2007, long before anyone thought Oboma would be our "historic" next President, and this is a good read: And here's an excerpt:

"Reason takes second place not to traditional morality but to subjective 'moral' intentions and THE EMOTIONAL SELF-SATISFACTION OF SUPPORTING A PUBLIC CAUSE SEEN AS PROGRESSIVE." — Heinrich Erben

As a young man, I wasn't a bit surprised to see atheistic professors take such contorted "positions," but I was so shocked by the Halloweenish positions taken by liberal "religious" seminaries that I long ago abandoned mainstream organized religion. I felt a cold October shiver as I stood outside the Chicago Theological Seminary at the University of Chicago last summer. — CD

[That is a long article, but it still gives me chills. Quotations from many writers, including Richard Nixon in 1962 now look like Jim Murray on steroids.]

PPPS: Another column you could review is "What's the Matter With Chicago?" An excerpt:

"One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship." — George Orwell

WE ARE WITNESSING A REVOLUTION — a very "peaceful" Revolution (so "peaceful" that many people are totally oblivious to it). However, President Oboma has also awakened a Sleeping Giant (the great Silent Majority). In attempting to tie down such giants as Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage, he has done so much talking that he has awakened the Giant himself from sleep — the gigantic Middle America.

WE ALL KNOW NOW that the economy is still in such serious trouble that when Timothy Geithner told an audience in China that the Chinese "investments" in our debts are 'safe and sound,' they laughed in his face. Even the Russian newspaper Pravda is alarmed by the Obama Revolution.

[Enough said?]
